The world around us activity

In this activity  each kid was handed a piece of paper and what ever tools they wanted to created with.

I asked them about colors and shapes as they drew every thing they seen and we labeled everything together. It was just over all a neat experience to see how each kid sees the world around them. My oldest child seen colors and detail everywhere while my youngest seen more shapes.(even though my oldest is better at drawling what she sees, my youngest was more verbal in what he was looking at)

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
